Intense, Funny, Great acting, Great writing, Great singing

See it if You have the chance, it was funny and intense, it'll will keep you guessing all the way to the end. Amazing singer and bonus: nudity.

Don't see it if if you're homophobic or don't like topic/story lines based around gays men. You're later as there is no later seating.

Disappointing, Fluffy, Overrated

See it if you feel like you need to because you are a huge fan of the movie. It's my favorite movie and I was underwhelmed. Vivian's was well casted.

Don't see it if you have high expectations. They should've left this as play and not forced a musical. The end scene was good more than that pass.
